Your initial appointment will consist of a consultation explaining your diagnosis and treatment options.
Occasionally, surgery can be performed the same day as the consultation.
Don't Forget To Bring
- Your surgical referral slip and any x-rays if applicable
- A list of medications you are presently taking and the name and phone number or your primary care physician
- If you have medical or dental insurance, bring the necessary completed forms and insurance cards
All patients under the age of 18 years of age must be accompanied by a biological parent or legal guardian at the consultation visit.
A preoperative consultation and physical examination is mandatory for all patients undergoing IV anesthesia for surgery. You will also need an adult to drive you to and from your appointment, and stay in the office during your surgery.
Please alert the office if you have a medical condition that may be of concern prior to surgery (i.e., diabetes, high blood pressure, artificial heart valves and joints, rheumatic fever, etc.) and what medications you are currently taking (i.e., heart medications, aspirin, anticoagulant therapy, etc.).
